I am in support of the use of cameras to monitor intersections. If the legislature really cares about the reduction of accidents and injuries that occur at intersections by those "running " the lights then they will not cave in to those who only see the money issue. Perhaps they …

I concur with you observations and comments about the lack of painted lines on the streets of Killeen. Most streets throughout the city are in this condition. I called the Streets Department over a year ago and was told they didn't have the funds to do it because their excess funds were go…

texpa1 commented on Pros & Cons of HOTDA

Kudos to the two CC City Councilmen who have stood up and questioned the return on investment for the funds being given to the HOTDA. I have also questioned the price we taxpayers have been paying for the recycled information that we have been given over the years. They (HOTDA) process av…

Don't you just love it when the people we (taxpayers) hire to conduct business for us build walls around themselves and do their dam best to prevent us from obtaining information about how they are conducting that business. All as if they don't want us to understand how they are doing our …

Congratulations to Councilman Russell on saving taxpayers $33,000. Looks like you had to negotiate a little bit, but, a rather large step was taken. I only wish the Killeen Daily Herald (KDH) would have published the response to your earlier question, "What have they done for the cit…

I would like to congratulate Councilman Matthew Russell again for standing up and carrying out his fiduciary responsibilities by questioning the Cove's EDC expenditures. Hopefully this will result in saving some taxpayer dollars. It is refreshing to read about a government official stand…

Congratulations to those on the Cove City Council who are taking their fiduciary responsibilities seriously and are questioning the use of taxpayer dollars being given to the EDC and the Heart of Texas Defense Alliance (HOTDA). You are to be commended for having the courage to address these…

Well, looks like another few more government people (Cove EDC) have been been bamboozled again to spend $50, 000 of taxpayers' money on something that produces no tangible results. I'm speaking of the funds they appropriate so casually to the HOTDA. I would bet that if they were spending …
